Blog Kiosk: 11/7/2014 - Dodger Links - The Kershaw's, Hanley and Gabe Kapler

Last Night Clayton and Ellen Kershaw hosted a charity fundraising concert in Dallas in support of Kershaw's Challenge.  Country musician Clay Walker headlined the show.  Check out the Kershaw's on stage in the pic above, via kershawschallenge on instagramGo here to see more photos from the evening.

"I always want to go and visit with the people that wear the uniform of the United States of America," said Lasorda, who looked up to Feller and considered him a friend. "I like to talk to them, I like to meet them, I like to tell them how much we appreciate what they do for us."
Jon Weisman at Dodger Insider shares a video of Tommy's acceptance of the award that you can see here.

Kapler's best strength, judging from his writing and his television work, is as he says, a strong ability to explain and deliver information to a wider audience, and — looking at his personal writing on health and lifestyle — do so in a passionate, relentless fashion. On September, Kapler wrote about baseball's next competitive advantage for Fox Sports.

"The benefits of infusing a mindset of flexibility and adaptability are obvious. The only way to reap those benefits is if players, coaches and managers buy in," Kapler wrote. "By starting at the lowest levels, these men will have multiple years to learn and develop this flexibility before arriving onto the major league field."
  • Apparently, another Padre insider is expected to join the Dodgers front office.  Via Eric Stephen at True Blue LA, "Jeff Pickler rumored to join Dodgers front office."
  • Here are some details of a Southern California Baseball game played over 100 years that had been all but forgotten.  Fortunately, Gary Ashwill at Agate Type tells us all about it.  Future Hall of Famer Walter Johnson pitched against the Los Angeles Giants (a black ballclub) in 1908.  Check it out here.
  • Cubs super-prospect Kris Bryant is a class act.  Via David Just at the Chicago Sun Times, "Kris Bryant performs random act of kindness for Twitter follower."
“I’m just a big fan,” Kennedy said in a phone interview. “And for me I collect cards and then started collecting game-used memorabilia. When you own a bat that was used in a game it’s a piece of history to me. So that’s why I like them. Even 30 years from now here’s this bat that was used by a player. So I just collect. I wasn’t trying to get anything from him. I just wanted to know if it was legit before I bought it. … I was blown away.”
